Biffy Clyro's cover of Rihanna's Umbrella has been given the thumbs up by the woman herself.



The Scottish rockers have received plenty of attention since their 2007 take on last summer's biggest No 1, and revealed exclusively to Orange that even Rihanna is a fan.

Speaking to us, lead singer Simon Neil said: "Rihanna heard it on the radio and said she really like it, so we've still got a chance with Rihanna."

According to bassist James Johnston, the motivations behind the cover were driven purely out of revenge.

He joked: "She beat us to the No 1 spot in the album charts which is something that enrage us. We thought we had to get her back and mess up her song."
